I have to remove myself from the situation when I get angry and give myself 'time out' give myself time to cool off just by walking away, by removing yourself from the situation that is angering you, you are stopping yourself by reacting in a way that you may regret, like hitting out at someone or verbally abusing someone. I used to suppress my anger a lot which is not healthy. Now I burn off my anger by going to the gym. For me exercise helps me focus and not succumb to anger.

There are a lot of things that we can do to prevent anger. Sometimes, I find that thinking logically can dissipate it. When I think logically, it somehow gives closure to what I'm feeling, especially when I get angry for no reason. I understand what you're saying. I think getting angry for no reason comes from things that we really have no control of like while serving a customer. You can't really get angry at a customer since the customer is always right. This will cause the anger to be reflected to other things. Whenever I think this is the case, it's always easier to just think something like I don't have to get angry at this person since he really didn't do anything wrong to me or something like that.
